30 Day Letter Writing Challenge

I have a confession: Starting and keeping up with this blog is very difficult for me.  While I love to write, I often question my abilities.  This is especially true when I know someone else is going to read my work.  Wondering if they'll enjoy it or understand it makes me obsess over every paragraph, sentence, and word. It's actually quite annoying.

So, despite my initial apprehension, I've decided to take on the 30 Day Letter Writing Challenge to challenge myself and what I think I am capable of accomplishing.  I'm taking on the challenge because the writer in me is hiding and I need to let her know that it's time step out proudly into the world!

Below are the details for the challenge. Try it yourself--you don't have to send them or share them.  Just write them and see where the process leads you.  And, of course, check back here for some of my letters that will be posted. Dearest readers, you are also my witnesses--I will start and complete this challenge! *nods firmly and puts foot down*
